Adipocytes Produce Aldosterone Through Calcineurin-Dependent Signaling Pathways
Hypertension, 04/16/2012Briones AM et al.
Functionally adipocyte–derived aldosterone regulates adipocyte differentiation and vascular function in an autocrine and paracrine manner, respectively. These novel findings identify adipocytes as a putative link between aldosterone and vascular dysfunction in diabetes mellitus–associated obesity.
